After that initial appointment, my OB sent me to Labor & Delivery (which I’m used to calling L & D as my mom is an L & D nurse) triage to monitor my high blood pressure. There was a lot of self-reflection while waiting 2 hours as they monitored my and my baby’s heart.
It started out like any other Thursday. I went to my weekly OB appointment with 2 weeks left until my due date. My appointment was early in the morning before work, so it wouldn’t interrupt my workday as I wanted to wrap things up before my maternity leave. Little did I know things were about to get REAL fast.
We never really cared about interior design, nice furniture, and matching materials…until the baby came along.
Quick heads up: there will be no new comic next week! I hope everyone has a great holiday!
I was so uncomfortable in those last few weeks before the baby was born that wrapping me in soft things before bed became a necessity.
Once you hit 36 weeks of pregnancy, you meet with your obstetrician weekly, and the countdown begins.
The pressure was on with 4 weeks to go before the expected due date of our baby.
Heads up: there will be no comic next week because of Thanksgiving. Enjoy the holiday, everyone!
Eating other coworkers’ food from the company fridge is a faux pas, but is it excusable when you’re pregnant? 😳
The baby was getting bigger and bigger, and my poor bladder couldn’t handle all the pressure. I was surprised to be this sleep-deprived before the baby was even born.
Instead of the classic “Will it blend?” question, I posed the question: “Can I eat it?”
Kids, don’t try this at home.
I was starting to get the hang of the third trimester and finding ways to cope with my gestational diabetes. If I were to do it over again, I would’ve researched keto recipes earlier. Nut flours were a GAME CHANGER.
